As part of the yearlong celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Institute for Social Research (ISR), Provost Teresa Sullivan, third from right, joined ISR Director James Jackson, right, for a ceremony to mark the burial of a vacuum-sealed, stainless steel time capsule containing examples of the institute's scientific work and day-to-day work life. The capsule will be opened at the ISR's 100th anniversary in 2049. Also at the ceremony were, from left, George Alter, acting director of the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research; Bill Axinn, director of the Survey Research Center; Jeffrey Morenoff, associate director of the Population Studies Center; Anna Schork, ISR associate director; Mark Tessler, vice provost for international affairs and a research professor for the Center for Political Studies, and Rowell Huesmann, director of the Research Center for Group Dynamics.
